I have made a monochromatic card for my dear friend, Sharon. Her birthday is later this month and purple is her favorite color. I don't have a lot of purple stuff since I don't really care for the color. But, for Sharon, I dug through my stash for paper and cardstock. For this card, I chose to use a deep eggplant Bazzill cardstock with Stampin' Up papers in the same color family. I I used the Distress Inks to color the image, added flowers by Prima (which my sweet husband bought me as a surprise when he went to Vegas last Friday), and stamped the interior sentiment using Distress Ink on vellum so that the patterned paper can be seen beneath. The greeting on the front was metallic gold. I colored it purple with a Copic Marker. The lacy circle on the front is elevated using tiny foam pieces. It is also beautifully dry embossed. I used the same embossing set on the inside for the circles as well as that interesting shape on the inside top flap. It's a shame you cannot see the dry embossing. It's beautifiul! The embossing die is available at Crafts U Love. The adorable stamp, Tilda with Small Gift, is available as a preorder through Magnolia-licious! Diana at Magnolia-licious has all of this collection available as a preorder. If you stop by, be sure to check out her exclusive line of MAGNOLIA MINI STAMPS! You don't want to miss those!
I have chosen to enter this card into two challenges. The first is a monochromatic card challenge found at Cute Card Thursday. I'm not comfortable with challenges, but I figured why not? If my card is one thing, it's monochromatic! LOL The second challenge is a Use Your Stash challenge found at Sketch and Stash Here is my card:
